Microsoft Office question
Posted Nov 11, 2016 - 2:33 am
If I purchase a 365 product do I have to renew yearly to keep using Word at all or is it mine forever, just not the most current updated version? I only need to create, edit, share and store documents so Word is really the only thing needed. Is it possible to just purchase Word only? So far I can't see that it is. All of my saved documents were created with Word so don't I need to stick with same platform to continue accessing them? They are routinely modified/updated.

It is possible to buy Office plain, current version is Office 2016. That is what like you're used to. Buy it once and then use it forever. It's $149 in the MS Store.
Supposedly you can open word files with google docs, but I've never tried, I'm not very Googly. I would definitely test that first.

If you want to buy office, talk to someone you know who is in school. College and many high schools can get you a steep discount on office. When I was in college, I was able to pick up Office home and student ($150) for $50. They began offering 365 for free to all their students before I left. It went with your school email, so I opted for the "forever" purchase price of $50.
A school email (ending in .edu) can net you many discounts via Microsoft. You should check it out!
